Rumors have surfaced that NVIDIA has cancelled its dual-GPU GF100 graphics card, instead the company will release a dual-GPU card based on the GF104. The card that some roadmaps new as D12U-50 is internally canceled due to its too high TDP. A Chinese roadmap claims that such a card should end up with whopping 375W TDP.

The new dual-chip card based on two GF104, second generation Fermi chips should be coming this year, most likely for back to school but we can only speculate on the launch date.

The GF104 will be first encountered in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460. This card should come out during the coming months and will have a power draw of 150W, about a quarter less than the GTX 465. The latter uses a GF102 chip and consumes 200W. As such, the so-called dual-GF100 D12U-50 is now canned and its place will be taken by the dual-GF104 D12U-15. It is unknown how long it will be before the device debuts. While it is clear it will be sometime this year, no sort of time frame is available.
